On a dull grey island, a group of spiders all named Bob live a monotonous life of uniformity. A strange one-of-a-kind creature who identifies herself a "lamadodacada" crashes onto their island and shakes up their way of life. This happy-go-lucky oddity brings with her tales of the outside world. She praises the spiders' differences, despite their claim that they are all the same. When the spiders' eggs hatch, the baby spiders believe the lamadodacada to be their mama and want to be fed. She offers them her favorite food, strudels, which they enthusiastically accept. The leader of the spider tries to win them back with muddy leaves to eat and cautionary tales of the evils of anyone who is different. With the help of the lamadodacada and the trusting young, the spiders learn to recognize and even celebrate their individuality.
